On the stats page of my blog, I saw that someone had googled “never well since pregnancy homeopathic remedy”. I am not sure exactly what their interest was, but I am going to take it as the person is not better since being pregnant, and wanting to know how homeopathy can help.
It is a happy time when a baby is born. There are also a lot of changes in a woman’s life at this time. Now, the mother has someone to take care of, who is totally brand new to the world, to itself, and to its mother, father and its siblings. Everyone is learning about each other. We often say, the baby doesn’t come with a how-to manual. There are new roles, new responsibilities, new expectations, new schedules, new personalities, new family dynamics, just newness.
The mother wants to do the best job she can, even more than the best. With this new change in her life, she may be experiencing:
- deprivation of sleep and sleep difficulties
- breastfeeding issues
- eating issues – not getting enough nutrients, not eating enough/eating too much
- change in dynamics of the family
- changes in her relationship with her significant other
- image of herself / how she looks at herself, self reflection
- how she looks physically – body is different, weight gain
- going back to work/staying home
- being super mom
- healing from the birth or a c-section
- miscarriage, stillbirth
- anxiety, postpartum depression – An article on postpartum depression
- exasperation of an ongoing health issue
- baby having a difficult time or experiencing a health issue
- health issues of a family member
- feelings of being overwhelmed
- advice from others
- the baby was adopted
To ask for help is always a sign of strength, whether it is asking our family, friends, and/or professionals. By taking care of herself, the mother is also taking care of her new baby and her family. I know that at this time, the mother really isn’t thinking so much of taking care of herself, may not even have the time to think about it because she is so busy with the needs of others. Any time is a good time to ask for help, if it is needed. (If the mother, or you who is a mother and is reading this, are having thoughts of hurting herself and/or the baby, please do contact someone for help.)
After the pregnancy, it is a good time to come for homeopathic care. The homeopath will listen and observe the how and the what of what is bothering the mother – physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually – and then give the homeopathic remedy that is similar to this. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like.) The similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the healing process of the mother. It is safe for the mother to use homeopathy while breastfeeding, and is therefore safe for the baby. And, homeopathy can be used in conjunction with other healing modalities, including western medicine.
I want to add – homeopathy can be helpful and healing to a mother whether the pregnancy is new, or one that was years ago. In both cases, the mother has noticed that she has not been well since that particular pregnancy, even ones that were years ago.
I would be happy to talk with that person who is “never well since pregnancy homeopathic remedy”, or any woman that is not doing well since being pregnant. Either contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.
